benefits. we have asked experts to join us for a fiscal cliff roundtable discussion, if you will. ron brownstein is a senior -- cnn senior political analyst and editorial director of the national journal and stephen moore, senior economics writer at the "wall street journal" and is in washington, d.c. first up, ron, will, do you think, these politicians reach a deal or not and why or why not? >> the fiscal cliff was yeelted as a doomsday machine to try to give them more will power to do what they can't do on their own, to reach a deal. the reason all of this was here, incentive to reach a deal, some of your guests pointed out during the day, a lot can go wrong when you leave is it to this late, a little little surprising to me republicans don't feel urgency, talk about this in a minute, maybe, the wolf on the other side of the cliff, difficult for both sides, the country is worse for the republicans than the democrats. it's possible they make a deal, possible they go over, no more precision than that. >> are we thelma and luiz, rocketing towards that canyon? >> took the words out of m
in the housing markets and for hundreds of thousands of charities in this country. again as i say, which ron didn't respond to, this party that has paraded around, the party that wants to rein in government spending, they are unable to identify any changes in medicare or entitlement spending which shows the tea party at its core was a phoney, phoney movement. >> joy, it's interesting to hear ron referring to august 2011 because a number of refers appear to have forgotten something happened in november 2012 called a presidential election. >> right. it was an election in which president obama, unprecedented for a democrat, actually ran on a platform of raising taxes. he said, i'm going to raise taxes on the top 2% and he was re-elected resoundingly with it. to what ron said, if it's only $14 trillion, what's the big deal, go ahead and let the rich pay it? that's number one. number two, the other thing that's been exposed and what's true, what's always been true about conservativism is that the core principle is the rich don't pay too much, they pay too little. when they say things like broaden the
this for a bill that can't and shouldn't become law. joining us now is ron meier, spokesperson for american majority action and jared bernstein a senior fellow and an msnbc contributor. welcome to you both. jared, this plan b, it's not only an affront to what the president has been trying to do in terms of a balanced approach. it's also a colossal waste of time, isn't it? >> absolutely. i mean, i have been writing about this in terms of theatrics at a time when really nobody ought to be going to the theater. the fiscal cliff is way too close for this type of game playing and i just noted today that the gdp report for the third quarter got a little bit of a bump. it was marked up to 3.1%. we're actually making some progress on this economic recovery, but if we go over and stay over the cliff because of all this screwing around, forget about it. you're going to have that recovery go south very quickly. john boehner on monday looked like a guy who is willing to make a balanced compromise or at least consider one in the interest of the country. john boehner on wednesday looks like a guy who is
taylor, ron christie, who is a republican strategist, both with me here in new yorkened a dr. james peterson, an associate professor at lehigh university, a regular contributor to thegrio.com. welcome to all of you. ron, the gop has announced a new party, quote, grow the party and win. how effective will it be when the only recognizable names are ari fleischer and haley barbour's nephew henry who believe the polls are skewed against mitt romney. >> i don't agree with that. i think politics is about addition not subtraction. we did a very bad job with outreach with people of color, we alienated college educated women, the gay vote and the hispanic vote. if the republicans are serious about growing as a party and about moving forward not only for 2014 but the presidential election, we need to grow and expand our base and we didn't do it this time. >> when the election was in process, why were you not standing up and condemning publicly some of the things that were repeatedly being said that were mildly racist, deliberately sexist, often divisive of people. why didn't you stand up and
in the first degree. joining me the parents of jordan davis. lucia, you got that phone call. ron found out first and called you, what was your feeling? what happened to you when you got that call? >> it just, when i happened to come up in the bedroom and i saw my phone light up and i saw that it was ron. i knew it had to do with jordan. i knew 11:00 at night, there would be no other reason why he would be calling. and when i picked up the phone and he said where is earl get earl. and i knew that it had to do with jordan. i knew something was terply, terribly wrong. and i think i knew in my spirit, i knew that he was gone. i felt that. >> ron, dow think that it was in your voice when you made that call. i can't imagine having to make that call to the mother of this child that you both just lost. >> when i cam back from the hospital from seeing him. that it was my child in the hospital that passed. walking up to my front door thinking i can tell my wife jordan's step mother first of all and going through the reaction and then the realization to the both of us that we have to make that call t

mccarthy. ron barber. i'm still kind of shaking after my last interview, as i have been after several interviews with people who represent gun rights. it's the glibness of the argument. it's the callousness of the way they continue to justify the freedom of people who continue to use assault rifles. that's what they are, with these high-capacity magazines. carolyn mccarthy, when you hear this and the way the issue is framed what is your reaction? >> to be honest with you, i'm happy that you had him on, because america should see what we're up against and the lies that they take to the american people, and unfortunately, an awful lot of them believe that. what we're trying to do is save lives. what we're doing after this shooting, and to be very honest with you, you're going to be hearing from my colleague, you know, what happened in aurora, and what's happened in the last several years. and the shootings get worse and worse and worse. and so that we need to do something. and i do believe, because the country cannot go through what they just saw these last several days. i believe the c
victims of the newtown, connecticut shooting. nbc's ron mott is live in newtown this morning on a somber and sad day for connecticut and the nation. ron? >> hey there, chris. good morning. obviously a very somber day here as you mentioned in connecticut. across this country as the 26 people who lost their lives last friday were being remembered with these tolling of the bells, not just here at connecticut but around the country as well and for a lot of people time simply stopped last friday and hasn't moved in a lot of ways. it is still 9:30, december 14th. for so many family is here and so many friends of those families that are sharing such anguish and such a sense of loss and senselessness at the whole situation last week just up the road here with those 20 young children, those six adults who lost their lives in such a brutal way last week. now, some churches around the country have decided to add a 27th bell toll and a 28th bell toll in memory of the family of the lanza family, nancy lanza, the mother of adam lanza, as well. but a lot of these folks, they know that time will eventua

to capture that dividend? cnbc contributor ron says it's tough to pull off. ron s this a smart strategy for investors to pursue? what's your take? >> i expect large i traders can do these things more efficiently than individuals. back in the 1980s japanese investors got special treatment for dividend payments. it was well better than what they got for capital gains. they used to engage in strategy called dividend rolling or dividend capture strategies where they would buy the stock one day before it went ex dividend, captured it, sold the stock later. i would suggest that unless you really want to own the stock, particularly some like dish, i wouldn't try to play around with this stuff because don't forget, the stock goes down by the amount of dividend paid out on a particular day. can you get trapped in some of these strategies by being too cute. >> i hate to go against fundamentals. you're cautious about buying those stocks for special dividends. what are the risks? >> have you to remember, the reason you have a special dividend is because there might have been better than expected ea
by michigan democratic congressman gary peters. ron, i'm going to start with you. describe the scene for us there and what's at stake. >> reporter: good day to you. it just started snowing within the past few minutes. these folks are braving very cold temperatures here but they're very fired up about this legislation being pushed through the state house today. as you have reported it will turn michigan into a right to work state. republican governor rick schneider and other supporters of this legislation says it actually makes michigan more attractive for businesses around the country who may be considering relocating their businesses to michigan. workers are the ones you see behind me, several thousand hearsay this is nothing but an attempt to try to break the back of unions in a state where ally unions are synonymous with michigan. we've spoken to a number of workers this morning who say this was a backhanded way for the governor and republican toss get something away from democrats and working class people of this state by trying to say that this is going to make a situation better in th
in and say, ron, why did you buy so much of that stock in the final ten minutes? he would report, because i like it. i already own it. you see how much i like it because i own it. that was the primary defense. you haven't seen a great many big prosecutions in this area. interestingly enough, one of the areas that they did, oh, about 25 years ago, prosecute some folks on was running a options portfolio. they marked the stock up to make the options more attractive so they got a bigger bonus from their firm. >> they closed the stock on the strike too, right, art? >> absolutely. >> the options owners wouldn't make any money. >> that's right. >> are you expecting, ron, that we're going to see various sort of techniques at year end to make the portfolios look better? >> i think now that this has become so public with "the wall street journal" article, it focuses on the movement of very thinly traded stocks. one thing to watch out for is they don't invest in this microcap world that is so easily pushed around. they were talking about one stock in the article that had a market value of $36 million.
or not the rewards of cheating is worth the risks. we have clinical psychologist wendy walsh and ron gethner. great to have you both on. wendy i want to ask you first of all why do some people in wall street cheat? what do you think is going on in their minds in their face of potentially being prosecuted? >> well, first of all they're getting an exciting rush of dopamine in their brains no different than a shoplifter would. and they analyze their risks and rewards. the risks to them is minimal. because it is not prosecuted enough. every once in awhile there's a high profile person like martha stewart convicted and the rest of the time they go unnoticed. >> i would argue against that actually. >> i know, ron. "new york times" says the risk to reward is highly calculated and they go toward that risk feeling that the reward is going to be worth it. you don't buy that, do you? >> no, i don't. first let's look at what she just stated. the numbers are actually up on prosecution. s.e.c. is up 8% of the prosecutions from 2011 to 2010. 2012 hasn't closed the books yet. two, we've been on the inside talking
's ron mott is in the thick of it with the latest. >> reporter: all those protesters are starting to make their way away from the stateho measures passed the house. i just came back with an interview with the governor who expects to sign these two measures tomorrow, though it could happen later tonight. no signing ceremony because of the contention surrounding the issue. one of the things that a lot of workers on the ground talked about says it's an issue of fairness. it's unfair for non-union members to benefit from generations of hard work, all the advancements for organized labor and blue collar workers through the generations. the governor says they believe this makes michigan more competitive not just to attract businesses here but around the world to attract international companies to michigan and puts them back on a level playing field with other states that have passed similar legislation. if the governor signs this, as expected. michigan will become the 24th right to work state, joining a lot of other gop republican-controlled legislature. a partisan issue, republicans versus dem
me now, politico executive editor and ron mott live in lansing, michigan. first, you, ron mott, the day after the governor rick snyder has signed the right-to-work bills, what is the labor movement planning to do next? >> well, we don't know, andrea. pretty quiet on that front, much like it is down here on the street. far different scene yesterday, of course, a lot of union workers very upset about not just this legislation that's going to wipe out a 77-year-old requirement that workers be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment, they are upset also about how this was jammed through the legislature. this was passed in both bodies in four days time and signed by the governor last night. what the advocates of this legislation say is union shops and unions no longer can just depend on fattening up their membership roles by default, they actually have to go out and sell themselves, sell their benefits to the workforce in order to earn those memberships. so we'll see how this all changes. the law will go into effect some time in late march or early april. we don't know
.c. penney side, i do think j.c. penney has an interesting turnaround story here. the stores of ron johnson have been able to revamp and institute his new model of a collection of boutiques. those stores have seen the revenues double. only 10% of the stores have been revamped, but if they can continue to maintain cash flow long enough. >> i don't like what ron johnson is doing. since this guy's taken over this stock has done nothing but go down. it was about the product, not the concept. anyone could have sold ipads and ipad minis and iphones over the year, the complete opposite and failure at jv penny the want to avoid those shares. >> rich, of course, the stock has done poorly, but it's done much better since the ipo of groupon of the you've been much better served actually being in j.c. penney than being in groupon. i would also say this. i think there is a cushion you have in j.c. penney than not groupon and that's the real estate. arguably the real estate of jc penny is worth more than the market cap of the company. with the underlying protection i think you have a bit of a free call o

's senior political analyst ron bram's team. thank you both for coming in. ron, you wrote an interesting column, i just read it, in the national journal about democrats having a more unified coalition after the election in november. what sort of negotiating advantage is that supposed to give them in the fiscal cliff situation. >> i think it's almost the inverse of what we saw in 2010 after big democratic losses in that election. the caucus was divided in the house and senate on whether to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. republicans were unified, they insisted it be extended for everyone. president obama ultimately made a deal to extend them as you know, for two years for all taxpayers, which is how we are where we are now. democrats are virtually in lock step showing cracks, saying maybe we need to extend for those in the middle. it's a different circumstance. i think the leverage on the tax side, at least is clearly with the democrats, stalemates mean the tax cuts expired and democrats are more willing to live with that than republicans are. >> when you read between the lines her

is not executing war powers in a consistent and endless way? >> ron, you are a student of leadership, both a student of good leadership and bad leadership. i feel like leaders good and bad can generally be counted on to never give up power that they have been granted. if this president does draw a hardline under the war, the war on frterror and say this war is over and the powers i had that are associated with this war are no longer the powers of this office, i mean, is that a fantasy? is this something you can imagine this president doing? can you imagine any president doing it? >> you know, if he's going to do it, this constitutional law president, it will be in this term. you know, it might be toward the end of this term. these issue, no matter what happens on some of these sort of legal sort of standards, the issues in a way don't change. small groups of people can get their hands on weapons that were once powerful and reserved for nations. that doesn't change. that's carried by technology and it's one of the great perils of the modern age. having said that, it's clear that this presid

, and republican strategist, ron bon john. some say the fact that we're not hearing much of washington is a good sign, and in this case, silence is golden. you guys agree? >> yeah, i definitely do. look, one of the things that we've got to realize here is that the more that this fight takes place in public, the less is being done behind closed doors, because everyone feels that they have to justify the public rhetoric. so i think that we have two silences going on. there's barack obama and john boehner working things out and the republicans realizing that they've got to find a way to negotiate. so silence is golden for christmas season. >> do you agree, ron bonjean? >> yes, i completely agree. i think that silence is best. and right now while they're figuring out how to put a deal together, i think the president softening his rhetoric in michigan on the issue yesterday was extremely helpful. you know, what we are still far apart, as far as we know, on entitlement reform, spending cuts, raising the rates, you know, we've been talking so much about raising taxes that we're not talking a lot about

, it's not there. >> i know this name isn't on your list, rocco, but i wanted to bring jcpenney up. ron johnson you could have argued would have been the ceo to turn the company around. but we've not seen the results. would you consider putting him on this list as well is this. >> i wrote an article earlier in november that criticized ron johnson and his performance. i think what happened there is ron johnson was fantastic at apple. but he worked at apple with steve jobs. ron johnson probably read a few too many of his press clippings. if you watch the investor day he did a few months back when he first came to jcpenney, people thought he was crazy when he went to target and went to apple. and then he talks about how he went to steve jobs' house, saying, steve, i'm leaving for jcpenney. and he said, are you crazy? and he's saying, target was great, i went to apple was great and now we're in the same position with jcpenney and i'm going to work the same magic there. no, you can run shotgun with steve jobs all day long. steve jobs was the retail architect. >> we should note, andrew mason

business between gaza and israel. the possibility in the next year or so, ron is going to tell us that they are nuclear now. the next secretary of state needs to be one who is very much well educated on what has happened. otherwise you'll end up ith much bigger bengzi problems. lou: you mentioned the constitutional referendum tomorrow. it will take some time for that would support for president mohammed morsi we be judgment for what constitution should look like. will he prevail? will he come at the end of the process, process the powers that he claimed for himself two years ago, of which he has since relinquished? >> unfortunately, my answer is going to be yes. one is saying that we need to reject the referendum, the other part is saying no, we want to boycott. so now they are divided. the result is going to be the muslim brotherhood and president morsi is most likely going to win the referendum. on the other hand, the opposition is very strong in egypt. there is no return to the previous situation. what i suggest in the future is that mohammed morsi will win the referendum, try
constructive talks, i believe those are the quotes. i have with me, ron brown, cnn contributor. ron, it's not how it works in washington, the straight up-or-down vote. >> it hasn't for a long time. there are two separate things here. there's the filibuster in the senate. but the biggest obstacles is the hastert rule in the house. it has always been hard to see bill that a majority of house republicans would vote for that would be acceptable to president obama. so in many ways, i felt for really months, the only two choices were going over the cliff or abandoning that hastert rule and john boehner being willing to bring up a bill that could be passed by democratic votes, not passed by the majority of republicans. sounded a little more optimistic on the relative gauge we have than over the last couple of weeks. >> they're now running out of venues to discuss this. they discussed it at the white house. tried to get a deal between speaker boehner and president obama. now it's gone to the senate. harry reid and mitch mcconnell will try to work something out. after that, they have run out of
